Dozens of pie bakers will compete for a blue ribbon as part of the Malibu Pie Festival next month.
The festival, now in its 23rd year, is set for Saturday, Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the courtyard of Malibu United Methodist Church, 30128 Morning View Drive in Malibu.
The pies will be entered into multiple categories and will be judged by Malibu civic and business leaders, as well as celebrities, according to Tabitha DiLeo, a spokeswoman for the festival.
Other activities will include a drumming circle, Art Barn’s mural painting, playing games, gunny sack races, and face painting, DiLeo said.
Attendees will also be welcome to compete in a hands-free pie eating contest.
All proceeds benefit Malibu United Methodist Church children, youth and family programs and community service projects.
